Book Description

30 Sep 2011
As DI Nikki Galena struggles to come to terms with the tragic death of her friend, a man is found on a piece of wasteland in Greenborough town. The manner of his death, a cold-blooded and professional execution, bothers her deeply, but not nearly as much as it bothers her sergeant, DS Joseph Easter. Joseph's life has been scarred by a terrible event in his past, something so awful that he has spent years coming to terms with it. Now, when it seems that everything is finally coming together for him, he realizes that the nightmare is seeping back, threatening his career, his sanity and maybe his life. Add to this a mysterious series of bizarre and unexplained suicides, and Nikki Galena finds herself locked in a battle to find what appears to be not one, but two brutal killers loose on the Fens.

Waiting for the sequel of Mask Wars, and Joy did not let her readers down. It was a not-to-put down book.

When is the next one coming out, Joy?????

5.0 out of 5 stars Shadow Breaker - Another great read. 3 Nov 2012
Having enjoyed Mask Wars, this was a great follow up. Once again the characters work well. Intriguing storyline with a good twist at the end that pulled everything together. Look forward to the next installment.

DI Nikki Galena has returned to her home in the Fens. Feeling good she sets off for work to welcome back Sergeant DS Joseph Easter who is today joining her CID team on his first day back after being injured on duty *. As she walks to her car she is enthusiastically greeted by her closest neighbour Martin Durham whom she has known for nine years. He tells her he has some interesting news but it can keep until the weekend.

Later, called to the incident of a jumper Nikki is horrified to see the body of her neighbour Martin, who just a few hours previously had greeted her with pleasure. Now he is dead by his own hand. He had thrown himself from the top of the church tower. What could have happened to drive this happy man she saw earlier to suicide in a matter of a few hours. With friends and family Martin appeared to have no reason to take his own life.

Sergeant DS Joseph Easter is pleased to be back at work, but not so excited at being given the task of reviewing suicides in the area. But a chance sighting of Billy Sweet, a man from Joseph's past turns Joseph's life upside down - what is Billy Sweet doing here? Joseph has reason to fear Billy Sweet and eventually unable to deal with the nightmare, realises that he has to face his past before he loses his mind and maybe his life. Should he tell Nikki of his past experiences so that she can understand his deep fear of Billy Sweet?

A discovery of a second body, one who bears a resemblance to Billy Sweet, totally unnerves Joseph. But Nikki is trying to make sense of another bizarre suicide. Are there two killers out there?

I was totally hooked as I struggled to comprehend the mystery of the suicides, and how Joseph would resolve his personal nightmare. A fascinating and complex mystery from a clearly gifted writer.

Cannot believe I am the first review !! This was a phenomenal read. I had really enjoyed Mask Wars and Shadow breaker was eagerly anticipated. However it surpassed my pre-conceived thoughts and once again Joy has given us a book to remember, talk about and above all to recommend. The principal subjects.. DI Nikki Galena and DS Joseph Easters are brought to life so easily you can almost believe you know them. Keep up this expert work Joy, You are a natural born writer...MORE please !
